don't exspect much for info, i have tried before. this could be a good thing for they leave all the big ones for us. i tried before because i have to drive over 100 miles to go down there, and with gas prices it sucks. good luck the fish are there, i haven't been down there since derby days in franklin.

where do you fish by granite? I do a lot of fishing south of Sacred Heart for channel cats.

I mostly fish Skalbaken Park for over night camping.But I'll drive to other spots that look good and are close (within sight)to the river.Park two is ok depending on flowage and how deep the hole by the granit outcrops is.Upstream I try the boat landings.Some day I want to bring my 14FT. boat 7 1/2 Hp.But I'm spooked of rivers,I once lost power and went under a docked barge on the mississippi,REAL SPOOKY.How bout you where you fish.Oh ya I catch the flat heads over night at both parks #1 being better.Largest 35LBS two years ago.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
